he acclaimed history of the century-and-a-half of ferment, folly and angst that resulted in the arrival of 'the teenager' in 1945.

Ringing with music, from ragtime to swing, Teenage roams London, New York, Paris and Berlin with hooligans and Apaches; explores free love and eternal youth; meets flappers and zootsuiters, the Bright Young People and the Lost Generation. The stories come fast and furious, comic, poignant, painfully moving; Savage fuses popular culture, politics and social history into a stunning chronicle of modern life.


'Compulsive reading . . . a rich, rewarding book that makes an important contribution to cultural history.'
NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

'The definitive history of youth in revolt.'
ROLLING STONE


'[Savage] can bring a beguiling blend of gravitas, wit, scholarship, and a slyly appreciative eye for the subversive, to any topic he approaches. Teenage provides a panoramic scope for his talents.'
INDEPENDENT

'Savage has produced a book that may well change how people think about teenagers.'
GUARDIAN

'One of Britain's most trusted cultural historians.'
